I started a secondary account and wanted to start a Shaman to box with my Zerker. At the time, my BER was low- to mid-80s, and SHM was high-60s, low-70s, when I started grouping them. It was okay; my shaman was buffing and slowing, which is the basis I had in mind with them. Then, my zerk high-80s, whereas shm low 80s, and soloing DH was getting harder and harder. Without being able to pull, I was restricted to snaring and training zone with my zerk, then AA rooting the snared one on my shaman. And then, around 90+, my zerk stopped being able to even solo the mobs because they hit so hard. Now my zerk is 98 and shaman is still 83. Primarily due to unease when creating DH HAs groups, I would just use my zerk. But I've talked a lot about this and it seems my shaman has only disappointed me. I realize a SHM is a Priest class but I wasn't expecting a shaman to play main heal... That leaves my main, the Berserker, moreso a secondary, as when I play them together, I am sending him in and auto-attacking, while switching over to heal with the shaman. Honestly, a ranger or another dps class would be more suited. When DPSing, I have 2 mag-based, 2 dis-based, 3 poi-based, and 1 nuke loaded. I've looked at the spells later on (which seem like a good increase in damage), but the DoTs I've been using take so much longer to kill things -- My Zerk died in a DH at Lv.88 with a mob at near full health; it took my shaman all his mana, and 5 full rounds of DoTs to get the mob down, at level 82. Green trash mobs in Sleeper's Tomb even take over a minute to kill with 3 dots and a nuke. I'm just disappointed in the class. I wasn't looking at having a strict-utility class. I assumed, at this stage of the game, every class could hold their own. And my shaman, at Lv.83, I'm skeptical on soloing anywhere. Additionally, the Shaman slow spell has essentially bottomed out with Turgur's Insects at 51 due to it being the best slow % high spell duration. I've refrained from putting much more money into Slows, but after reading them on ZAM, some even have a heal for the Target's Target (although lasting only 1.5mins). Although, I'll strictly use Turgur's, Turgur's AA clicky, AA AoE clicky, and seldomly Tortugone Drowse AoE. Do any of you shaman use these healing slow lines instead?
